When I fist learned of Maude Decor and Patricia Baun (shown above), she simply had fabulous hand-painted canvas rugs which were first introduced in 2002. Those alone were worth a blog post. However, now the range has greatly expanded to include silk, flax and wool rugs, art prints, wall hangings and more-- all graphic and colorful and unique. Even unusual collections inspired by Canadian Mountains and Constellations.
Maude Décor’s canvas rugs can be crafted from any design in their collections – or custom made to the design of your desire. They are available with non skid backings and look great in commercial or residential spaces, kitchens or living rooms.
They are kid and pet friendly, keep your feet cool, easy to clean, fade and stain resistent...what more could you want from a rug?
Below are some of the canvas rugs. Keep in mind that each is available in several different color combinations and well as sizes. Patricia is so prolific and has so many designs, collections and options that I am not showing all of the products, so be sure to visit the Maude Decor website.

below are just a few uses of her rugs.
Their rug designs are also available in made-to-order hand-tufted or hand-knotted wool, silk, flax or combinations thereof:
Since her rugs really are 'art', it's no wonder she offers them as prints too.

Available on paper, the prints come in two sizes (6” X 9” or 8” X 12”) and can be selected from any of the options displayed in their gallery. For more information and pricing details click here.
And finally, she has just released this stunning rug, a collaboration with artist/designer Michael Staniszkis. Caaw is available exclusively at www.66degrees.com for a limited time. Only 20 will be created. Finished size is 8'x12'. Each will be hand-painted, signed and dated.
